Hmm, I guess such a thing would be nice to have. But I think something
similiar might already exist - there is guile-gobject (for the GLib
object system), which probably does this & more. I will try to go this
way, implementing my services as objects derived from GObject. When I
have the stuff running in C, I'll look into guile-gobject.

Looking into GObject (and guile-gobject) might be an idea for serveez,
too: It seems quite easy to implement dynamically loadable types with
it, which could be used to simplify serveez's server loading

Thanks anyway ;-)
